CLCKR Smartphone Stand

We’ve been testing the CLCKR phone stand and it is really really good! It has made using our phone even easier, why? Well for us we’re people who love to consume content on the go, as well as at home. The CLCKR grip helps with this. As it provides a firmer and safer use of our smartphone. Not only that it looks really good too and doesn’t add any unnecessary bulk to the device.

It can be used on any device thanks to the 3M adhesive. While if you decide for whatever reason (we don’t know why you would!) want to take it off, it won’t leave any residue behind!

With CLCKR you can use it to;

  • Position your phone in portrait or landscape mode to video call with friends or family
  • Hold your phone comfortably and take brilliant selfies
  • Utilise the secure grip to make calls or use your phone on-the-go
  • Stand your phone up and use it as a second screen while working
  • Binge-watch your favourite films or TV shows hands-free

“Like everyone else, we’ve been moved by the important work carried out by frontline workers during this time to keep us safe. The show of support for them at our doorsteps, on our balconies and out of windows has been a highlight of our weeks in lockdown. At CLCKR, we wanted to do our bit to help and we look forward to contributing all UK profits from online sales of the Rainbow CLCKR to the COVID-19 fundraising appeal by NHS Charities Together.”  Phil Mulholland, Chief Marketing Officer & Managing Director, CLCKR

Folding iPhone Exciting Concept!

Folding iPhone. The one rumour that just won’t go away. Noe the team over at #iOS beta news have created a rather cool concept. The Folding iPhone looks like a cross between a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip or the rebooted Motorola Razr.

In the video above we see the iPhone Flip, a handset that when folded out in phone form, has really thin bezels. The notch is gone and has replaced by a centre mounted pin-hole camera. The back has the usual tipped iPhone camera array.

The video also shows a backplate-mounted secodary screen.Which can display content, notifcations and messages when the phone is in clamshell mode.

The rumours of a folding iPhone and the hundreds of concepts as a result. Have come from a patent from Apple depicting a folding iPhone. Now you know as well as I do that not all patents get made. So who knows maybe Apple are planning a folding iPhone, maybe they’re not, they may just be testing the water. But whatever happens, we know that Apple tend to wait until the tech has been perfected before adding it into their smartphones.

(T3)

So I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Until then we can enjoy the plenty of concepts that are on the web today.

Swisse Me’s Advert TOO RUDE for Tv!

Too Rude For TV!

No YOU have a dirty mind! – new advert from Swisse MeMore here: http://www.howtokillanhour.com/entertainment/swisse-mes-advert-too-rude-for-tv

Posted by How To Kill an Hour on Wednesday, 13 May 2020

A new advert for some healthy fruit smoothies has been deemed too rude for TV. Swisse Me, the food’s makers, has dubbed the advert ‘health food porn’ is 30 seconds long. It’s got censors all hot under the collar. As they’re calling for it to be screened after dark!

A new commercial for healthy fruit smoothies has been called too rude for TV.

A breakdown…

The advert has a whistling soundtrack and has a medley of fruit which is seductively handled. It ends with a jet of fruit smoothie erupting from a pouch. Mind out of the gutter you!

The start of the advert shows a pert pair of avocados, which is then followed by an upright length of banana being stroked by single female finger. Next we see mens fingers plunge into a juicy orange!

Furthermore an apricot is then prised open, a man cups a pair of hairy kiwi fruits and running his finger across a bulbous avocado stone.

As a banana rises into view, dripping in honey, smoothie juice drips from the centre of a strawberry.

ooooof is it getting hot in here is it just us.

Finally a lemon and avocado is squeezed with vigour, a banana is broken in half. While a geyser of smoothie flies over raspberries and blueberries which lay on a bed of spinach leaves.

Therefore, ad censors have called for the commercial to be screened after 9pm watershed. Despite it showing a single sweaty body. Clearcast the TV advertising governing body, stated that the “sexual innuendo, involving genitalia, breasts and porn” is likely to push the advert to be pushed well after the 9pm watershed.

So, after reviewing the advert, the watchdog confirmed the advert will only be shown during late-night telly.

The 30-second commercial was made by health food brand Swisse Me to promote the ingredients in their range of ready-to-drink smoothies.

What Swisse Me say…

“There’s nothing more natural than getting a mouthful of fruit, which is exactly what our smoothies are packed with. All the goodness, with none of the filth. We can deliver them straight to your letterbox too, in case you want to be discreet.”

“We know how tricky it is to get in daily vitamins and minerals, so we’ve made it super easy with handy smoothies in 12 deliciously naughty flavours.”

Nykkea Maretic from Swisse Me

“This isn’t just any food porn commercial, it is a health food porn commercial.” Rowan Adams Advert Director

Episode 350 Apple vs Beats ft. James Haskell!

Airpods Pro vs Powerbeats Pro

James Haskell took the two best wireless headphones for a spin to decide which is the best! It’s time for Airpods Pro vs Powerbeats Pro!

Airpods Pro

Comfort

Firstly we have to give not to Apple’s take on comfort. In-Ear headphones which don’t fit right, will always sound bad! Each pair of Airpods Pro come with three different sizes of soft, flexible silicone tips. So they can form an exceptional fit to help aid active noise cancellation. Allowing you to not even be aware that you are wearing any headphones! This is emphasised by vents which will equalise the pressure, helping you feel as though there’s nothing there!

The tips are internally taped too, so they are designed to conform to your ear shape. Therefore not only making them fit better but making them more secure!

Noise Cancellation

The AirPods pro are SUPER smart too as they’ll continuously adapt to the geometry of your ear and the ear tips. Blocking out external sound to focus on the music, this is called Adaptive Noise Cancellation.

How does it do this?

Well, an out an outward-facing microphone detects any external sound. Then the headphones themselves will  counter it with equal anti-noise. Therefore cancelling the external sound even before you hear it. Furthermore an inward-facing microphone also listens to the inside of your ear for any unwanted sound. This is further eliminated with anti-noise. All of this is continuously adjusted at 200 times per second, giving you truly immersive sound.

Noise Transparency

AirPods pro have something called Transparency Mode allowing you to hear what’s happening around you. Simply press and hold the force sensor on the stem to jump between Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency Mode. Transparency Mode let’s the outside sound in, allowing you to talk to people nearby or hear the traffic around you.

Audio

Adaptive EQ is also another smart feature. This will automatically tune music to the shape of your ear. Giving you a rich consistent listening experience.

Love Bass? Well you’re in luck. Strong, powerful base is delivered in a custom-built high-excursion, low-distortion speaker driver. As discussed earlier the inward-facing microphone will help fine tune the audio by adjusting the mid and low frequencies. The amplifier within the in-ear headphones will remove the background noise and the H1 chip controls listening levels. The super-efficient high dynamic range amplifier produces amazing sound which is super clear. Additionally helping to also extend battery life.

H1

The H1 also powers Siri, give low audio processing latency and helps with the real time noise cancellation via 10 audio cores. The way that the AirPods Pro are designed with the placement of each component based on the form of the human ear. Helps maximise comfort, fit and stability.

The force sensor not only helps to control music and calls easily it helps to switch between Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode.

The H1 also allows the in-ear headphones to connect as if by magic to an iPhone and Apple Watch. Simply open up the charging case or hold them near to your device and wait for them to appear on screen. Then click connect! The charging case is also wirelessly chargeable via QI enabled chargers.

Like to gym? No problem the Airpods Pro are sweat and water resistant! They also feature an expanded mesh microphone port to help improve call clarity in windy conditions!

Not to forget Siri either! Hey Siri! Will allow you to control, music, calls, volume and directions, all without lifting a finger! Even share a song, podcast or an audio stream between two sets of Airpods with Audio sharing on iOS 13!

Powerbeats Pro

The new Beats earphones Powerbeats Pro are built specifically for those who love to workout and are always active. They have zero wires for a start so there’s no holding you back!  Powerbeats Pro delivers powerful, balanced sound with dynamic range and noise isolation for a very cool and enjoyable listen.

They are wireless (obviously!) but also have a really strong connection to your device, with fewer dropouts included! You are going to get sweaty using these right? Well they have a reinforced design for sweat and water resistance! Not only that the adjustable, secure fit ear hooks keep them locked in to your ears. So, you can keep locked into the music.

While you get a total of 9 hours of listening time the charging case will give you an additional 24hrs of playback! If you need a charge, Fast Fuel for 5mins gives you an additional 1.5hrs of playback! Hands Free controls via “Hey Siri” on iOS devices and  and voice capability with a push of the “b” button on a variety of compatible devices!

There’s also volume and track controls on each earbud so you can play both earbuds or one at a time. Not only that there’s also sensors in the buds which will detect when you are wearing them and start/stop playing accordingly.
